I managed to get a couple of days off and skied twice. I skied at Granite Peak in Wausau Wisconsin with some buddies from the Green Bay ski club known as Gelandesprung. It was a great day, we arrived early and being in the middle of the week we practically had the resort to ourselves! The first runs were mostly hard groomers which transitioned into regular groomers, and then into very soft groomers. The soft snow did not matter too much at least not at first when we were in the first third to half of a run with a decent pitch under us. Granite Peak is very famous for rapid drops in vertical followed by long runoffs to the chair. I suppose for those situations renaming the run is appropriate. Very typical day for late spring skiing, I suggest you drop what you are doing to get your last runs of the 2014-2015 snow season in!
The second day I skied at Ski Brule on Saturday The snow was soft and moguls were forming on Big Bear but it was still a good day. I have been trying all year long to ski with a special couple and life was constantly getting in the way, well life finally allowed it to happen. I did not ski very hard spending more time with my companions and taking breaks from the skiing. Still I had a good time skiing. I took a hard digger, I was on the left (as you are skiing down it) of Logjam and I caught an edge or something and life went into slow motion and I hit the snow and my head came down hard, I am glad I ski with a helmet. I took a good gouge out of the snow there and it was definitely very soft and melty snow. The rest of the day I kept to the center of the run.
I hope to get at least one more day on the slopes in before it is over, how about you? How is your spring skiing going?
